  4. You’ll Put Your Eye Out, Kid: Doctors Warn of Dangers of Flying Champagne Corks

    It's New Year's Eve, which means plenty of us will be following a certain great global tradition --going home with a stranger in a desperate, booze-addled effort to prove that we, too, are worthy of love. In another tradition, this will leave plenty of us wishing that we were blind when we wake up tomorrow morning to welcome another year. The American Academy of Ophthalmology, though, reminds us that, aside from "while you're pulling on your pants and calling a cab tomorrow morning," being blind is not a desirable condition. The organization has even issued a handy public service warning to remind people to exercise caution when popping the champagne this evening, as the flying corks can put eyes out just as easily as a Red Ryder BB Gun.

  5. Deepest Wishes for a Joyful Belly Rub [Video]

    And All Was Right With the World

    Look, guys, here's the deal. I had to choose a video for the end of 2011. Something that could bring a smile to everyone's face, every single person who happens upon our humble little space on the web. And all I could think was that maybe everyone had a year that they loved, or just liked, or merely tolerated, or completely hated. But in the end, maybe we could use the human equivalent of a belly rub. As a reward, as an antidote, whatever is needed. So I give you Mackie, the Boston terrier, and the strange noises he makes until he finally gets his belly rub in the end. I think we can all relate. And for a bonus, because you deserve it, Mackie asking for some mac 'n' cheese.

  7. No One Knows What “Auld Lang Syne” Means. Now, Guess What This Post Is About.

    Olden Lore

    Okay, some people know what "Auld Lang Syne" means, and some might even know some, most, or even all of its lyrics. But why do we sing it at New Year's ... and what does it mean, anyway? Is this something we missed in school? A lost relic of times when we, as a people, drank buttered rum and roast goose at the holidays, somehow stowed away in the dusty attics of our minds, taken out once a year and covered with so many cobwebs that we can barely recognize it anymore? Depressed yet? Come inside, we will learn this together.

  9. Taiwanese CGI Rings in the New Year with Father Time 2010 and Baby New Year 2011 Kicking Each Other in the Face

    Ridiculous Taiwanese "news network," NMA TV, rings in 2011 by showcasing a fight between Father Time 2010 and Baby New Year 2011. The video features an old man sneakily kicking a baby in a top hat in the face, and a retaliation of floating bicycle kicks. Though Father Time 2010 loses out, Taiwanese CGI declares the year ends on a cliffhanger, as many of 2010's biggest issues begin to gang up on Baby New Year 2011.

    Did I mention the baby in a top hat is wearing a diaper and has a gun? Because the baby in a top hat is wearing a diaper and has a gun.
